Okay, Day 4...
so, I went to petsmart today and picked up three very colorful platies (all male)... They're in a 4 gallon qt tub right now, though they all look extremely healthy and (maybe a little too) vigerous. The redwag is the largest, hungriest, and apparently the most agressive... I think he thinks the other two are females, despite the very obvious gonopodiums... XD The other two are slight smaller sunburst and orange mickeymouse colored platies. I've gone ahead and stuck a cave in there, which the mickey mouse one has claimed... The sunburst one is hanging near it, for the most part being sure to stay out of sight of the red wag. >.< It's going to be a loooong month for the two smaller platies XD
Along with the platies, I got the better lights and hood for Panache's tank. It's incredible just how much more light the tank recives when it has a glass hood and proper light strip!
I'm a bit concerned about Draco and Salabite in the second npt... I was watching them swim in the sunlight, and it almost looked like there were little specks of sparkles between their scales... almost like velvet! :( I'll have to investigate further when it is dark and I can use a flashlight. I just hope it isn't velvet...
Draco's side :)
Salabite's side... Salabite has freakishly long pectoral fins... his right pecttoral is 3/4ths red... you can see the red in the pic! The last quarter is clear. Despite the long pectorals, he swims very, very well~ They're long and slender, really pretty~
It's pretty incredible to see how fast the plants are growing! The dwarf lilly arrived with three leaves,and now it has seven!
The roseafolia is doing well too. It (all of them in both tanks) started growing what looks like flowers! I don't know what they are, but they're pretty cool~
